Peter Hickman: Unleashing speed with DYMAG® UP7X wheels
Peter Hickman needs no introduction when it comes to Road Racing. The fastest rider to ever lap both the Isle of Man TT, Northwest 200, and Ulster Grand Prix circuits!
After a very successful IOM TT in 2022 with his first Supertwin win on the Paton, Hicky is setting his sights on more success in 2023 but this time on new machinery. 2023 will see Peter racing the Yamaha R7 built in-house at his PHR Performance headquarters. Not only will he compete at the TT but also the Northwest 200 road races. The bike has undergone extensive upgrades and improvements with the very best performance parts being added including the very latest Dymag racing wheels.
Dymag UK has been designing and manufacturing wheels for over 30 years, so to supply “Hicky” with our UP7X wheels for this new project is an ideal partnership. Peter’s feedback can only help strengthen the already well-renowned UK brand. To top the partnership off PHR Performance has also become a retailer of the ever-popular aftermarket Dymag wheels.
“Dymag play a key role in the racing world. Their wheels are ultra-light, meaning more performance from the motorcycle and faster changes of direction as well as being stronger than standard wheels, which is a huge benefit especially when racing on the road.
Having the opportunity to run my Supertwin using the UP7X wheels is awesome, and I’m delighted to be associated with Dymag.
Last year I had huge success in the Supertwin races, and I want this year to be no different, although I am under no illusions of just how hard it is going to be. It’s a brand-new bike and nobody has any real experience with it yet in the UK and on the roads. The bike has been built by my PHR Performance Centre and is a new project for us. The team have done a great job, as we only received the bike recently, but the finished bike looks mega, topped off with fantastic-looking wheels!
I’m looking forward to running the bike next week at the NW200 and then onto the IOM TT!”
